Koerner Hall in association with Batuki Music Society presents Somi.
 
Grammy Award nominated vocalist Somi’s album, Zenzile: The Reimagination of Miriam Makeba, “seeks to not only celebrate the legendary artist’s musical contributions but also explore the lesser-acknowledged sides of Makeba’s art, activism, and life. … Somi helps the listener reimagine the Miriam Makeba they thought they knew — and sheds light on the role each of our voices can play in bringing about a more just world. … In Zenzile, Somi, a multidisciplinary artist and activist of Rwandan and Ugandan heritage who has been honored as a TED Senior Fellow and a Soros Equality Fellow (among other recognitions), imagines what might have been had Makeba’s voice been allowed to resound in its multifaceted fullness — and what we can learn from it today.” (Forbes)
